Warm Spring Curry

I have just the thing to soothe your soaked bones this weekend. Warm, fresh, and packed with a spring punch, this curry dish is super simple to make and absolutely dee-lish. 

Plus, it is very versatile to boot. Use whatever veggies you have on hand, or that catch your eye at the store. In our version, we used chickpeas, asparagus, peas, and new potatoes.  It would also be yum with broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, peppers, etc.  You can add meat to this dish too, if your heart so desires.  Let your imagination and creativity run wild! 

Happy Friday friends! May your weekend be happy, springy, and delicious!
